This one gets 4.5 stars for many reasons. I decided to count the many terms and phrases that are defined for the reader and there were 75 of them. Some like "water cycle", "passive", "Hobson's choice" and "tables have turned" are used several more times in the story. Others like "Byzantine" and "affinity for arson" are only used once. I also find myself hearing Patrick Warburton as Lemony Snicket due to my viewing of the new Netflix series.

Definitely my favorite so far. The Baudelaire's have some perilous experiences, but they continue their quest to reach the Hotel Denouement. Count Olaf is still a threat, but there are some humorous accounts of his new evil laugh including "Tee hee temper tantrum". Even Esme and Carmelita Spats add their own interpretations for some humorous lines.

Looking forward to Chapter 12!
